This was my best friend and my favorite thing we did while in Nashville. Our instructor, Lindsay, was knowledgable, laid back, and fun. The yoga class was both challenging and low pressure. I would 100% do it again.

Thanks, Elizabeth, for letting us know! We are biased, but we think our location is one of Nashville's great secrets (and we think Sam is a pretty awesome addition to our team, too). Hope to see you on the water again soon!

I've been in Florida and California and the currents can be rough to paddle against. I was attracted to thus experience since it's on a lake, which means lots of freedom and minimal to no current. Loved watching my young boys play fearlessly. They put...More
